Style Sessions Fashion Link Up: Summer Glam + Celebrity Fashion Auction

Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! Lately I’ve been loving classic summer favorites – light blue denim, bright white and fabulous prints. I adore putting a polished touch on these relaxed style staples… and of course, I added a few of my favorites. I can’t get by without my Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses and these wear-with-anything nude patent heels (I never had a pair like this until recently, they are a life changer – no matter what outfit, I finally have the perfect heels to match anything).

Celebrity Charity Fashion Auction – Now Live!

I’m also beyond delighted and excited to tell you… the celebrity charity fashion auction with actress, producer and The Real talk show host, Tamera Mowry-Housley is now live on Bloggers Closet!

Meet Our Head Stylist…

 I’m delighted to introduce you to this week’s Head Stylist, Tara from Northern Lights – Southern Belles! I adored this preppy chic look – and how darling is her son…

How would you describe your style?  My style is very in the moment. What I’m feeling, where I’m going, whether or not my legs have been shaved and tanned.  I tend to be drawn to a more bohemian rocker vibe.  When in doubt, I always throw on big sunnies and a jacket, they can pull any look together.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  I am totally obsessing over everything bohemian.  Everywhere I turn is fringed kimonos and pom pom shorts and I just cant get enough!!

What inspired you to start your blog?  I started my blog as a fashion outlet.  I was trying to find a way to channel my stylist brain without having to actually leave my boys and work a job.  I have embraced it as my new title; wife, mom, blogger.

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without: I’m a sucker for kits and all things benefit and too faced, but on an average day, I’m a minimalist, so my go-tos are Baby Lips (I’m a junkie, I literally have at least 1 of every shade ever made; including the neon, and 3 or more of my fave colors) , Covergirl Lash Blast Mascara in brown (its so good and so cheap!) , Loreal Sublime Tanning Lotion (because I’m for real whiter than Casper, thank goodness for tanning in a bottle)!

What is your best beauty trick?  Purple Shampoo!!!  It will change your life, you have no clue.  Even for brunettes, if you hate brassy hair as much as I do, go to Sally’s and buy the big pump of this miracle in a bottle!  I have turned the worst yellow bleach jobs into blonde perfection with just a few washes.

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? I have always wanted to travel to Greece. It just seems so breathtakingly gorgeous and I die for gyros.  One day I will go!

Tell us something not many people know about you? I’m a closet couponer!!  Like, seriously, I have an addiction to couponing!  And I don’t even use most of them, I just really enjoy flipping through and cutting them out.  It’s cathartic.
